Kong's NZ Limited was established in New Zealand in August 1996 by the current General Manager, Paula Clarke, who previously worked in the Australian Pet Industry.
The business began from Paula's home and the challenge to build a successful business progressed rapidly as the New Zealand Pet Industry quickly responded to the innovative and exciting products being offered. The continued growth necessitated the business to be relocated into commercial premises in Tauranga.
Paula was initially the sole employee, with great support from Davy Kong, it is with great pride that she now has a team of more than 20 staff. After 13 years with Kong's New Zealand, Paula still enjoys the daily challenges of being part of an exciting and competitive industry.
